This book has a lot of useful and detailed information about Bacchus, or as he is also known, Dionysus. I really enjoyed reading this book and found the information contained within to be spectacular. I totally wish this had been the first book on Dionysus that I had picked up in my quest to read more about him. I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about the Greek/Roman god of wine.
